Watch the moment Robbie Keane meets tiny fan who was worried about his injury

This is too cute.

Three-year-old Xyla is a huge LA Galaxy fan and was devastated when club captain Robbie Keane had to undergo surgery for a knee injury.

A video of her mother comforting the crying girl went viral and the club and player decided to arrange a surprise to cheer up their young fan.

Republic of Ireland skipper Keane met Xyla and her family at a game - and she brought him a picture she had drawn.

He reassured her that he would be back very soon.

“I’ll be back in a few weeks,” he promised.

“Next time I’m playing you have to come and watch me - and I’ll score a goal.”

Better keep that promise Robbie!
